Paul Frank NYFW Event

On the first night of NY Fashion Week, models, moms and celebrity moguls came out to celebrate Paul Frank Industries’ new children’s collection called “Circus Jumble” at Hudson Mercantile.


The event featured two runway shows with mini models strutting the catwalk and the event opened up to a lively party for kids of all ages with music by DJ Fulano, snacks of cotton candy and popcorn and entertainment by aerialists, contortionists and stilts walkers.

Even though I wasn’t able to make the event, I passed my invite on to one of my good friends – Jovan (IG: @ponyy_boyy) and his adorable baby sister. They said the event was so much fun and the collection had some really nice pieces. Here are some shots he got while there.




1 year of Wedded BLISS [ 8.31.15 ]

One year ago today, I walked down the aisle and said ‘I Do’ to my soulmate.

Soulmate… how cliché right? I know. BUT it’s true. There is no one in my life that knows me and accepts me for me, the way my husband does.

I remember our wedding day like it was yesterday. You can’t control everything on your big day so we just went with the flow and the whole night was just truly magical. I never got a chance to post about our Wedding Day so I wanted to share with everyone some pictures from the day as well as post about our amazing vendors.

Enjoy :)

Our wedding was picture perfect, but the whole day wouldn’t have been as successful as it was if it wasn’t for our amazing vendors so I owe a huge THANK YOU to each and every one of them! Feel free to message me if you need any direct e-mails to contact them. I truly loved every vendor we chose and would recommend them to everyone.

1st and foremost, my Mom! She came up with the design of the decor down the aisle as well as the center pieces and not only set everything up herself with the help from my florist, but purchased all the details.

Cinematography: Live Picture Studios – Words cannot describe how happy we were with the work from Live Picture Studios. From our Cinematic Highlight to the Regular Edit, we were just blown away. I HIGHLY recommend them. You can check out our Highlight film HERE.

Entertainment: Mystical Entertainment – My husband and I had a special place in our hearts for the DJ Company we went with because we all went to the same school together. Having 2 people DJ your wedding that you basically grew up with is pretty special in itself but in general John & Mike always go above and beyond for ALL of their clients to make your special night a memorable one. Our guests were on the dance floor from the minute we walked in until we had to leave. They will walk you through every step of the process from the ceremony to the reception and make sure they deliver exactly what you expect and much more. We can’t thank them enough. Everyone always says there are 2 things people will always remember from your wedding.. the food & the music. It’s safe to say that a year later we still get compliments on how amazing they were.
